Hades and His Witch (Demon Gods Book 2) by Rhys Lawless; Narrated by John York

When narrators and authors pair together sometimes you just get this kind of magic. Hades and His Witch written by Rhys Lawless and narrated by John York archives that magic.

From the blurb:

I'm dying, and the only one who can save me is him.

Hades, king of the Underworld, god of the dead, ruler of... Honestly? He's got too many names to list.
You know the guy.

Apparently, I need him to survive this disease that's been a death sentence since I was born.
Apparently, I'm also the reincarnation of his queen, Persephone. How's that for a kicker?
Little, hideous me, who uses tattoos to cover his endless flaws and whose only power is seeing death at every corner.
And apparently, we have to do the deed to save me from certain demise.
Yeah. If I wasn't so unequivocally...me, I'd think it was a very elaborate scheme to get me into bed.
But even that goes wrong.
So. Terribly. Wrong.
And now everything is effed up.

Figures. Only I could break the god of the freaking dead.

Hades and his Witch is the second book in the Demon Gods series, a spin-off series set in the Cursed Hearts universe.
Inside you'll find a magical tattoo artist in need of saving, a god of death who's a hopeless romantic, ghostly "interactions", and a snarky mobile phone (among other things). Written in British English with US spelling and grammar.
This book can be listened to as a standalone.

Molly Otto's review:

John York paired with the writing of Rhys Lawless is a pairing that I can not pass up. He makes already amazing stories better and just that much more intriguing, and you feel every emotion all that much more. When each character is speaking, you know its them, unlike some others I have listened to before.

The tale of Hades and Persephone with a queer twist of fate. Sandro was born to die young, something he's known his whole life. Hades has been waiting for many reincarnation to have a chance with his Persephone once again. With the help of Mother Red Cap, their fates are once again intertwined. These two do not have an easy journey, but they are powerful and show how much they have always been meant to be together.

As with Loki and His Master, Rhys weaves a captivating tale from start to finish that will have me coming back for more with each installment.

Jacquie's Review:

Hades and His Witch is set in the Cursed Hearts universe, but stands alone. Though there are visits with Loki and Tomaz, I think it would be possible to read this book without reading the other one.

I loved everything about this version of the Hades and Persephone myth. Making it fresh, with plenty of Sandro taking the lead. Hades was so soft for his mate. It was adorable!

The audio is well performed with John York. There are distinctive voices for the main characters as well as the side characters like Hela. really enjoyable listen.
